ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, February 28, 2023 - 

Efficiency and productivity are critical factors for success in today's fast-paced manufacturing industry. To maintain a competitive edge, manufacturers must continually seek new ways to optimize their processes and increase throughput. For this reason, the introduction of automation capabilities in machine tools has revolutionized the manufacturing landscape. 

By enabling machinists to minimize downtime between operations and automatically loading and unloading workpieces, machine automation maximizes throughput while reducing production costs. With the voice of the customer in mind, Shibaura Machine offers several machine tools with automation options. This article will highlight the machine automation of the TMD series of Vertical Boring & Turning Mills which provide a precision machine tool designed for high-accuracy, high-productivity manufacturing of large and heavy parts.

Automation Made Easy

The automation options available for the TMD series help to minimize downtime between machining operations, allowing for the machine to run continuously without the need for manual intervention. This not only increases productivity but also helps to reduce labor costs and improve overall efficiency.

Pallet Changer

One of the key features of the TMD series is its pallet changer system. The addition of the pallet changer allows for the automatic quick and easy exchange of workpieces. The pallet changer system is designed to minimize downtime between machining operations, which helps to maximize productivity and throughput.

Pallet Pool

The TMD series is also available with a pallet pool system, which provides even greater flexibility and efficiency in manufacturing. The pallet pool system allows for the automatic loading and unloading of workpieces by storing multiple pallets, which means that the machine can run continuously without the need for manual intervention.

Linear Pallet System

The linear pallet system offered on Shibaura Machine’s TMD series is a compact and efficient storage solution that allows for the automatic loading and unloading of workpieces amongst multiple machines. The linear pallet storage system is designed to maximize the use of available floor space, making it ideal for manufacturing facilities with limited space.

Shibaura Machine's pallet changer, pallet pool, and linear pallet system are all easy to operate and integrate seamlessly with the TMD series. The advanced control system and programming capabilities provided allow for easy setup and management of these options.

Start Improving Production

The pallet changer, pallet pool, and linear pallet system options available for Shibaura Machine's Vertical Boring & Turning Mill TMD series provide a high level of flexibility, efficiency, and productivity for heavy-duty manufacturing applications. With these advanced features, the TMD series is an ideal solution for manufacturing facilities that require high-precision machining of large and complex parts.
